What is unfolding in Syria is an armed insurrection supported covertly by foreign powers including the US, Turkey and Israel.

Armed insurgents belonging to Islamist organizations have crossed the border from Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. The US State Department has confirmed that it is supporting the insurgency.

The United States is to expand contacts with Syrians who are counting on a regime change in the country.

This was stated by U.S. State Department official Victoria Nuland. "We started to expand contacts with the Syrians, those who are calling for change, both inside and outside the country," she said.

Nuland also repeated that Barack Obama had previously called on Syrian President Bashar Assad to initiate reforms or to step down from power." (Voice of Russia, June 17, 2011)

So, its seems that Syria is a go.. this is really going to piss off the Chinese and Russians! Especially, since the US state department has sanctioned and is supporting the insurgency (another Egypt/Libya?!). I learned yesterday that Russia has a naval base located in Syria.... this is definitely going to be the line in the sand!

This article is definitely worth the read.. yes it is an opinion piece, HOWEVER, it does include quotes and sources that are relevant to the situation, ie, the pentagon's plan to destabilize a bunch of middle east countries:

"As I went back through the Pentagon in November 2001, one of the senior military staff officers had time for a chat. Yes, we were still on track for going against Iraq, he said. But there was more. This was being discussed as part of a five-year campaign plan, he said, and there were a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan - General Wesley Clark

My thoughts are actually questions. Please help to understand what exactly is going on over there.

For instance, wasn't everything status quo over there a mere 8 months ago? what's with the sudden need to have all of these prior leaders removed?

Certainly this is not the extension of someone upsetting the applecart in Tunesia.

Are we supporting the instabilities in order to weaken other greater threats?

Or does this get really crazy and there actually IS a seagate in the Guld of Aden????

S&F - I am convinced the US is behind it - probably more than we know, and for many reasons we don't.

This may help you understand what is actually happening.

The operations conducted against Libya and Syria involve the same actors and strategies. However, their respective outcomes will differ since the situations in these countries are not comparable. Thierry Meyssan analyzes the semi-failure experienced by the colonial and counter-revolutionary forces, and predicts a pendulum reversal in the Arab world.
